Fuel Saving Tips

Ensure your wheels are aligned correctly

Make sure the wheels on your car are aligned by a specialist who knows how to use his equipment. Insist on a written report of the appropriate toe in/out and camber for front and rear wheels and compare with the manufacturer's recommendations. This improves fuel consumption with reduce rolling resistance, improves handling and braking, and will extend the life of the tyres considerably saving further dollars. Inspect tyres regularly to see if tyres are wearing unevenly which would indicate the car requires another alignment. Bad impacts with kerbs or pot holes can affect alignment.
